WHEN ARE NEWS DIRECTORS LIKE A BAG OF CHIPS?

When they go to work for WGCL.

The Meredith revolving door in Atlanta, GA has chewed through ten news directors in the last few years.

Matt King will be the latest to take up the challenge, coming to the station from Tegna’s WCNC in Charlotte, NC.

He’d been in Charlotte for the past five years.

For King, this is a return to the Atlanta market where he previously was the number two in the WXIA newsroom.

Thrills and excitement abound!

Said WGCL vice president and general manager, Lyle Banks: “We are thrilled to have Matt join CBS46 and Peachtree TV!”

As for King: “My family and I are excited to be returning to Atlanta and I’m looking forward to working with the great team at CBS46 and Peachtree TV.”

Peachy.
